#nannylife- First Week in Review + Tummy Time Painting

IMG_9063

I’ve done it! Although it’s officially been two weeks, since I’ve started, I’d still like to take a moment to reflect over how it’s been. First off, I’m so happy with my Nanny Family (NF). My charge is 3 months old, and honestly she as cute as could be. I’m so excited to spend my days reading stories, singing songs, helping with tummy time, and so much more! Originally, I was to be part of a nanny share with 3 families, and would have one main charge (3 mo), and the two others maybe one or two days a week. Now, that has come to a full-time nanny share of the original 3 month-old girl, and an adorable 2 month-old boy. For privacy reasons, from this point forward I will refer to them as G (girl, 3 months), and B (boy, 2 months). I couldn’t be happier about having two little charges! I can’t wait to start fun developmental activities, and help both children learn and grow through play. While right now I still have just G, B will become full-time in about 2 weeks.

In my second week, I had my first craft activity with G! Inspired of course by Pinterest, the activity focused on sensory play through colors and paint, and also worked in tummy time as well!

First off, gather your supplies! I used Crayola Washable paints for ease, but in the future I would definitely use more paint! You’ll also need some paper, and a clear ziploc bag to put it all in. Continue reading

Hello friends! As you know, I’ve been nannying with G now for almost a month, and am loving it! Though she’s only 3 months, I knew I wanted to make a small craft to give MB (Mom Boss) for Mother’s Day! G’s mom has been so wonderful to me from the very beginning, and I love knowing she has full confidence in me! I decided to do a take on the traditional handprint and turn it into a canvas painting MB would be able to hang in the house should she choose. Continue reading
